Library and Archives Canada is mandated to serve as "the continuing memory of the government of Canada and its institutions." We are the repository for federal government records of historical significance, and have the most complete collection of Canadian government publications in all formats. The resources available in our collection are vast and varied, and include textual documents, photographs, audio recordings, virtual exhibitions, databases, Orders-in-Council, the Canada Gazette, private archives and colonial records, Royal Commissions reports, and a host of research and finding aids related to our government holdings.
